Quit it with the Freeforms
Wow somewhere there's a warehouse full of this hardware...
It ran Windows 5 back in the day, and i'm sure there was a 6.1 version at some point too, from one of these guys. heh
Funny to see this thing pop up again with yet another vendors name on it.
Such a small niche form factor, yet keeps getting rehashed for use every couple of years as an attempt (or was) to get Blackberry users to move onto windows.
Buy to make your text messaging life easier banging out a million texts a month with its full keyboard instead of the numeric keypad of a flip phone....
